Silver Spring, MD (Thursday, June 2, 2022) – To keep students engaged in learning throughout the summer, Discovery Education and its social impact partners are providing students and carers with a free dynamic digital resource that they can use at home. This selection of content inspires families to explore the world around them and learn together. Discovery Education is a global adtech leader whose state-of-the-art K-12 digital platform supports learning anywhere.
The following selection of free digital resources created with social impact partners connects families with exciting learning experiences:
- Inspire the next generation of solution seekers with STEM and math-specific family activities. Stem Carrier Coalition. Family members can join because students have joined hands with self-directed learning and ready-to-use activities to promote career success.
- With resources from I’m amazing – An initiative with the Dove Self-Esteem Project – Parents and caregivers can play an active role in building students’ socio-emotional learning, health and confidence in the age of critical development.
- Encourage community collaboration with the 6th Annual Cha-Ching ™ Money Smart Kids Competition created with the Jackson Charitable Foundation. The competition enables communities to vote for their primary school so they can win $ 10,000 to support financial literacy education in their school. The competition will be open until June 17, 2022. In addition, parents can help students build financial literacy skills for life by watching together a series of fun, compelling videos that teach students to earn, save, spend and donate.
- The 3M’s Science at Home video series is a collection of simple, watch-and-do science experiments using 3M scientists and special guests’ common household materials to reinforce core scientific principles and make STEM learning as accessible as possible. Through household activities, STEM solution seekers can immerse themselves in science through creative and fun projects that range from engineering with marshmallows to chemistry with baking soda.
“The participation of caregivers in student learning has a profound, positive impact on academic and lifelong achievement. We are proud to collaborate with our social impact partners to present this collection of family-centered content. And it will inspire families to explore important topics like civics, “said Beth Meyer, vice president of social impact at Discovery Education.
Users of the Discovery Education K-12 Learning Platform can find these resources and more on the Corporate Education Partnership Channel. Each month, Discovery Education adds hundreds of new resources – from ready-to-use activity to immersive videos and podcasts and curated channels from virtual field trips. Each resource is culturally authentic, reflects the diversity of today’s world, and includes embedded support, such as closed captions, text-to-speech, and language translation.
